    The painting clinic is a must have, for painters starting out. Good stuff on that site.

    I think GW brushs suck for their cost and short lived effectivness they offer.

    Zap-a-Gap is a British product, but is just a fairly good Cyanoacrylate glue. But its thick and can bridge gaps as its name suggests. I don&#39;t use Testors myself, but almost any liquid styrene glue would suffice.

    Perhaps think about getting each of the Games Workshop glues to start with, they aren&#39;t bad, and will probably last about a year anyway. And try to find a cheaper local substitute.

    Incidentally, despite rumours Squadron Putty is still produced and available. Its rumoured worldwide ban (causing birth defects or some such *rap) never happened. What seems to be the problem is that when shipped, as with any glues, if it leaks, the importer has to pay for any problems. So, it seems only specialist glue importers will take this risk. Sounds like more *rap to me, but at least Squadron Putty is available in UK again.

    The thing about Squadron Putty is that it contains plastic solvents, that melt into the plastic slightly to create a better bond.
    Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
